Each year, the Parksville & District Community Awards, “The Glassies”, honours individuals, associations and businesses that have made a significant contribution to the Parksville community.
An independent nominations review panel selects those nominees that truly meet the awards criteria: a business, association or person who demonstrates a great capacity for caring, applying original ideas, accepting challenges, and taking risks while balancing the social needs of the community.
Use our online form to nominate an outstanding individual or business for this year's Glassies, or download and print the form. The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2013.
The 12th Annual Glassies awards ceremony will be held at the Parksville Community & Conference Centre, Friday, March 1, 2013.
